Feist is ready to take on the world.
On Tuesday, the Canadian singer-songwriter announced dates for her world tour, which will take her to Australia, India, Europe, the UK, Canada and the US. The American leg of her tour will also include two weekends at the Coachella Music Festival on Apr. 14 and Apr. 21.
The world tour is in support of Feist's latest LP, Metals, which was released in September 2011.
The album has unleashed two singles so far including How Come You Never Go There and The Bad In Each Other, which just arrived in music video form on Monday.
On Twitter, the 35-year-old musician provided a lengthy introduction to the video, which runs just under 6 minutes (video below).
This video captures glimpses of something human, we get a peek inside something real between people . . . could be loss, longing and love. A lot of things which is about being a human being, Feist wrote.
It is told in a way where it opens up more aspects than it concludes. Maybe something we can't grasp, but it points at it or touches it and leaves us with different kinds of emotions. You could think about the video like a song or a poem, and different people will connect to different things . . . and those connections might be different from time to time when they watch it, she added.
The Metals world tour announcement comes one month after Feist wrapped up a mini-tour of Europe and North America.
Metals is the fourth studio album from Feist. She first arrived on the mainstream music scene in 2007, thanks to the hit single 1234 from her third studio album The Reminder. The song, which received wide commercial airplay and even landed a spot in a Lacoste commercial, remains Feist's biggest hit to date, peaking at number 8 on the US Billboard 100 chart that year.
In November 2011, Feist made a brief cameo in The Muppets during a musical segment for Life's a Happy Song. (She also appeared on the film's soundtrack).
Feist will embark on her 40-date world tour beginning on Feb. 1 in Melbourne, Australia. The tour will also include stops in Sydney, Paris, New York, New Orleans and Oslo, with M. Ward (She & Him) supporting some dates in France and the UK.
